Paradise Luxury Cruises

Paradise luxury fleet is committed to grant our guests a genuine yet prestigious experience: a Paradise cruising experience in Halong Bay.

Victory Star Cruise

This cruise should be decent, luxury, modern but also very traditional. This idea came up in 2007 but Cruise management could only bring Victory Star Cruise into operation in 2009 after taking two years for design, building and  decorate the cruiser.
